So Many National Food Days, So Little Time

by Paige McKay

It seems that every month brings a new "national" day of celebration, whether it's National Cat Day or National Pizza Month. According to Foodimentary, the month of October brings with it several different food days to celebrate, and October is even National Food Month for several foods, too. Celebrate all month long with these recipes to celebrate National Pasta Month, National Potato Day and many more that come with the month of October.

National Seafood Month - all October long

Celebrate National Seafood Month and the fall season with a hearty bowl of Seafood Shrimp Gumbo from The Cooking Bride. This gumbo is full of shrimp, crab meat and oysters and packs in tons of Creole flavor.


National Pizza and Beer Day - October 9

Sometimes, there's just nothing better than stuffing your face with pizza while downing a few pints of your favorite beer. Celebrate accordingly with making your own pizzas. It's usually cheaper and way more fun than ordering delivery or store-bought pizzas. This copycat California Pizza Kitchen Barbecue Chicken Pizza is perfect anytime, but especially on National Pizza and Beer Day.


National Pasta Day - October 17

Whether it's chicken alfredo, baked ziti, shrimp scampi or anything in between, everyone is bound to have a favorite kind of pasta. On this year's National Pasta Day, celebrate with a bowl of this Mississippi Sin Pasta. It combines the goodness of Mississippi Sin Dip into a decadent pasta dish that might become your new favorite way to indulge in noodles.
